Milo Yiannopoulos invited to speak in Parliament as a guest of honour

Responding to Fairfax’s query about the peculiar invitation, Leyohjelm’s office said “Milo was already touring Australia and I thought it was a good opportunity to give those in Parliament (MPs, staff and media) a chance to hear from him there and put their questions to him.”

Greens Senator Sarah Hanson Young, responded to the email with words of confusion.

“I question how this man has secured a visa to Australia, let alone access to Parliament House. After all, aren’t we building a fence around the building to keep dangerous people out?” she wrote.

“It astounds me that a member of Parliament would roll out the red carpet to a white supremacist and paedophillia apologist. A man who travels the world spreading racist and sexist drivel, who believes there is no such thing as rape culture is not welcome in our safe and respectful house of democracy.”
